You're going to LOVE check-in -- I spent my first 8 years as a volunteer there with Barbara and the rest.
Your tasks will mostly revolve around checking in --wristband, name check, t-shirts, parking passes, etc. -- anyone who does NOT have a ticket to come into the festival, but should be given access. This includes vendors, performers, press, and volunteers. Ticket winners are always fun to deal with -- they're just so happy and grateful to be there.
Not sure on the camping issue, but honestly, and especially because regular patron camping begins wednesday as well, if you've got a 9 a.m. shift, I'd come the evening before and set up. We'll be at the white picket fence in volunteer camping if you want to stop in and say hi.
